Jancis Robinson / Côtes du Roussillon Villages 2008

2012-09-19 Jancis Robinson

Grenache, with some Mourvèdre and Syrah. Dark purple. Nose dominated by macerated berry fruit, opulent and sweet with a touch of liquorice. A note of char on the palate, some dark herbal bitterness, and deep blackcurrant. Rich, firmly embraced by swarthy, but not uncomfortable tannin. Very powerful alcohol so needs careful drinking and something equally powerful to match it on the plate. (TC)
